TigerMan Karate Dojo and Museum

Elvis cousins that lived at Graceland actually tour you around the karate dojo where Elvis studied under Master Kang Rhee and learned Karate in the 1970s. You will see gifts that Elvis gave to his family on display. They have the actual ambulance from August 16th, 1977! This place is a must-see if you love Elvis and karate. It's fan-friendly and personal. I'll be back!
